Nate Silver clarified his controversial "sexually gay but ethnically straight" remarks in a new Reddit Q&A. Last month, the 34-year-old statistician and New York Times blogger angered a number of lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender (LGBT) rights advocates after declaring he was "a little bit skeptical of parts of gay culture," and that friends had described him as "sexually gay but ethnically straight" in an Out magazine interview. "I don’t want to be Nate Silver, gay statistician, any more than I want to be known as a white, half-Jewish statistician who lives in New York," he noted at the time.
